ELEMENTAL I

Oil and Wax, 11 x 14 inches

The Elemental series of paintings depicts points of land in raging, stormy weather with rough seas. There is nothing peaceful about these scenes, but a sense of dread and awe at the power of nature. They are meant to be disturbing, immersive and dark. The storm is just clearing as the sun has set. The waves in the foreground are large, implying a low, close-to-the-water perspective adding a sense of drama. There is movement everywhere, but nowhere for the eye to rest…much like the real-life experience itself.

  • “Painting, art in general, enchants me. It is my life. What else matters? When you put all your soul into a work, all that is noble in you, you cannot fail to find a kindred soul who understands you, and you do not need a host of such spirits. Is that not all an artist should wish for?” – Camille Pissarro (1831-1903)
